WOOHOO it’s the weekend, which means it’s time to sit back and relax!!!
If the weather by you is anything like the weather by me, all you probably want to do is curl up under a blanket with some tea (and hopefully a furry friend!) and watch a movie. Well I am here to tell you that movie should be…
Maximum Tolerated Dose!
Maximum Tolerated Dose is an award-winning documentary that takes the standpoint of interviewing ex-animal experimenters. This documentary is SO credible because each of these doctors came to the conclusion on their own that not only is animal testing cruel, but it’s also extremely unreliable. The documentary has “hauntingly honest testimony of scientists and lab technicians whose ethics demanded they choose a different path,” and has an AMAZING way of rebutting any pro-animal testing arguments.
Maximum Tolerated Dose is THE best documentary I have ever seen. Maybe I’m biased because I’m extremely against animal testing, but I love it. SO MUCH.
Anti-animal testing is a cause that has always been near and dear to my heart. Who also remembers being a kid and finding out what animal testing is and being baffled?! It’s a ridiculous concept. Ever since, it’s been a no-brainer to me that I should only buy products not tested on animals, cause who wants to support such a barbaric practice? Literally no one.
After pretty much worshiping this documentary 3 years ago, I interned for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and worked with Dr. John Pippin, one of the doctors interviewed in MTD. When I finally made the connection that the Dr. John Pippin at PCRM was the same one in MTD, I was just a littleeeee starstruck. He made such amazing points in his testimonial about why we shouldn’t test on animals that I felt honored to be interning for the same organization that he worked for. Amazing guy, all the more reason to watch the documentary!
Part of MTD can be devastating (because it’s a documentary on animal testing, after all!) but I’d call it more factual than emotional. There’s something to be said about a documentary that sways you by facts first, then followed by emotion.
Plus, are you like me and you’re feeling the horror movie vibe as Halloween approaches us? Then this is THE film for you. But instead of being left feeling helpless and scared, this is something that you can actually take a stand against and do something about! Which, let’s be real, is what this life is all about, standing up for what you believe in!
You can watch it by paying $8.50 on the website, and then you own a copy of it for life! (I personally paid the $8.50 without thinking about it because I’d rather watch this legally and give money to this documentary than watch it illegally.)
PLUS the soundtrack is strangely AMAZING. It has some gooooood jams to listen to on a rainy day!
Just wanted to throw this out there too: If after watching this documentary you’re no longer feeling so down with animal testing, use the Cruelty Cutter app to see which products of yours are cruelty free!
Seriously let me know if you watch the documentary, cause I LOVE hearing what other people have to say about it! (You’re gonna LOVE it.)
